    I see the word "motivation" frequently on Uni sites and sites that help with medicine ps. For some reason however, I struggle the grasp what people mean by motivation for medicine.
    Would be nice if someone could clarify

    I think they mean that you are sure you want to go into medicine and you have been interested in it for a long time. Things that prove that you want to do it are important I think, such as volunteering at a care home etc., and work experience in hospitals and GP practice. If you have anything in particular that made you want to do medicine such as family then mention that.

    This is exactly what they mean. Everyone says that they are motivated! Show it, especially through your interest in your work experience and what you were able to draw from it. Extra reading (and being able to talk about it if asked at interview) also shows this well.

    All the best,
